Finding out how Michigan residents feel about wind power
Residents in Manistee and Benzie counties are receiving surveys in the mail this week. The survey will ask questions about wind energy.
Christie Manning is a visiting professor at Macalester College in Minnesota. She’s supervising the survey.
“To understand what it is about wind energy development that creates a sense of pro or anti in individuals; what are the various factors that tip a person to feel one way or the other?”
Township officials will use the survey results to help them with future zoning decisions.
There’s also an online version of the survey that’s available to anyone who lives in Michigan.
